“Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop” at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester features a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. As I mentioned a few posts back, my brother, Mark, our friend Kim and Peggi and I pooled our money (Peggi and I took a loan out for $1800) and we bought 125/200 of the ten prints above. We bought them through the Ronald Feldman Gallery in 1980 before Warhol had made them. They became too expensive to insure so we sold them last year at Christies. They steal the show at the MAG.
Our good friend, Louise, has a piece in the premier edition of SUNY Oswego’s new literary art journal “Subnivian.” I have read “The German Crowd” a few times now and am struck by how it draws me in and sweeps me away, like a myth.
myth a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events.
